We stayed at the Pearly Gris and wandered down to the sea and found this fabulous little restaurant. Food was amazing and staff were so laid back and friendly. The best goats cheese ever and spectacular views of the ocean. An absolute must

We kept this place for a special dinner. It’s a bit more upmarket than most of the restaurants round about but it’s worth. One of the owners is the chef and he comes out to meet the diners. The waiters are friendly knowledgeable and helpful....More

El Ancla is a typical Spanish restaurant. We offer Paella with fish, meat or vegetables. The highlight of the kitchen is mixed coal grilled, the only one in Callao Salvaje! A relaxing and welcoming atmosphere with a great view of the Ajabo beach will seduce all your senses. Enjoy an amazing evening full of flavors accompanied by our local wine from La Roja and from Italy. We are glad to invite you to stop by and taste a great dinner (and lunch)! We are located in a quiet area in Callao Salvaje in Adeje. DOGS ARE WELCOME upon reservation.
